20:00 - THE AUGUST LIST
Hailing from Dorset and now residing in a small barn perched on a hill in Oxfordshire, The August List are a boy / girl two-piece who play ‘backwards country / porch folk’ with a startling rock ‘n’ roll attitude return to AYL.
Acoustic guitars, kick drums, harmonicas and their voices are deployed with verve and passion on songs that take in life, love, death and making merry.
21:00 - BEAR & THE WOODS
Bear & The Woods splits its time between being a deadpan one-man band and a Folk & Roll fourpiece. Now in their fourth year, with UK Festival appearances, UK & European tours and a four studio releases under their belts, Bear & The Woods continue to push the boundaries of anti-folk with their unique, eclectic sound and energetic live performances.
22:00 - THE WAVE PICTURES
The Wave Pictures are currently promoting their vinyl only album called A Season in Hull. The album was recorded on acoustic guitars in one room, with a bunch of their friends, live in to one microphone on singer Dave Tattersall’s birthday, January 28th, 2015 at Soup Studio, Limehouse in East London. The songs were written as quickly as possible and the recording captures that specific moment in all its spontaneous, thrilling and immediate glory. As Tattersall elaborates: “That’s what this is - a one-microphone happy birthday recording.”
Earlier in the year The Wave Pictures (Jonny Helm, Dave Tattersall and Franic Rozycki) released Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon, their critically acclaimed collaboration with Billy Childish. They cemented their reputation as one of Britain’s most beloved and exciting live bands around with a sold out gig at London’s legendary 100 Club, their biggest headline show to date at The Tufnell Park Dome and an astonishingly heartwarming performance headlining the Garden Stage at The Green Man Festival.
